A small group of gnomes who reside in their village far from prying eyes.
About this creation
I've had a long planned idea for a gnome setting that's been placed on the back burner for a while. However, I do have a fondness for mixing and matching mini-figure parts to make quasi-custom figures and have done so in a lot of my builds. This is an example of that. I really wanted to mix both the fantasy and something of a more modern/steampunk twist, making them akin to the tinker gnome concept from Dragonlance (circa 2nd edition). So to make them more tinkerish I went with some goggled caps for a few of them, and mixed up the beards a bit to allow for some variety. I kept the choice of armor from an older series of castle, and included the short legs (except for the female gnome who I used a 2x2 slope and a 1x2 plate to create a dress). I would like to do a few more female gnomes, but lack suitable bodies and gray hair. Gender balance in lego has always been a hard thing to achieve.
